VBA - Combine worksheets in Excel and Kill all excel objects

This is a simple vba script that will let you combine excel work sheets and make sure no orphan excel objects are pending.

Sub CopyFromWorksheets()
Dim wrk As Workbook
Dim sht As Worksheet
Dim trg As Worksheet
Dim rng As Range
Dim colCount As Long
'Dim sheetDelimiter As String

' Creates excel app object
Set objExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
' Makes the excel invisible
objExcel.Visible = False

' Supress all display alerts
objExcel.DisplayAlerts = False

' Gets the complete path of the active excel sheet
strExcelFilePath = ActiveWorkbook.FullName
' Opens the excel file
Set objWorkbook = objExcel.Workbooks.Open(Trim(strExcelFilePath))

Set objWorkSheet = objWorkbook.Worksheets("Merge")

' Gets the count of column
Set objRange = objWorkbook.Worksheets("Merge")
numRowsCount = objRange.Evaluate("COUNTA(A1:A100)")

'sheetDelimiter = "######"
Set wrk = ActiveWorkbook 'Working in active workbook

For Each sht In wrk.Worksheets
If sht.Name = "Consolidated Backlog" Then
MsgBox "There is a worksheet called as 'Consolidated Backlog'." & vbCrLf & _
"Please remove or rename this worksheet since 'Consolidated Backlog' would be" & _
"the name of the result worksheet of this process.", vbOKOnly + vbExclamation, "Error"
Exit Sub
End If
Next sht

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Set trg = wrk.Worksheets.Add(After:=wrk.Worksheets(wrk.Worksheets.Count))
trg.Name = "Consolidated Backlog"
'Get column headers from the first worksheet
'Column count first
Set sht = wrk.Worksheets(1)
colCount = 30

For cntLoop = 1 To numRowsCount
     strSheetName = Trim(UCase(objExcel.Cells(cntLoop, 1).Value))
     If Trim(strSheetName) = "" Then
        Exit For
     End If
     If Trim(strSheetName) = "SHEET NAMES" Then
       GoTo Continue
     End If
     For Each sht In wrk.Worksheets
        'If worksheet in loop is the last one, stop execution (it is Master worksheet)
        If sht.Index = wrk.Worksheets.Count Then Exit For
        If strSheetName = UCase(sht.Name) Then
            'Delimits the copied sheets with a string in a new row
            With trg.Cells(1, 1).Resize(1, colCount)
                .Value = sht.Cells(1, 1).Resize(1, colCount).Value
                 'Set font as bold
                .Font.Bold = True
            End With
            trg.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1).Resize(1, 1).Value = sheetDelimiter
            Set rng = sht.Range(sht.Cells(2, 1), sht.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Resize(, colCount))
            rng.Copy trg.Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1)
            'Set objRange = sht.Range("A1").EntireColumn
            'objRange.Insert (xlShiftToRight)
            'sht.Range("A1") = sht.Name
        End If
    Next sht

Set objWorkbook = Nothing
Set objExcel = Nothing
Set sht = Nothing
Set objWorkSheet = Nothing
Set objRange = Nothing
Set trg = Nothing
Set rng = Nothing

Application.ScreenUpdating = True
'create WMI object instance
Set objWMI = GetObject("winmgmts:")
If Not IsNull(objWMI) Then
'create object collection of Win32 processes
Set objProcList = objWMI.InstancesOf("win32_process")
For Each objProc In objProcList 'iterate through enumerated
If UCase(objProc.Name) = UCase(procName) Then
objProc.Terminate (0)
End If
End If
Set objProcList = Nothing
Set objWMI = Nothing

End Sub

Happy Coding..
